Bringing Democratic Talk Radio to your community

03.05.09

It certainly seems like talk radio grows best if it grows organically and is based in local communities instead of being created from on top nationally. We have been getting many, many requests to bring Democratic Talk Radio to new communities since the first of the year.
Maybe we need to create a Democratic Talk Radio Support Committee in each area:

(1) We can first work on getting financial underwriting from organized labor and Democratic groups in each location and statewide in each state.

(2) We could look at Democratic campaign donor lists and possibly solicit them by phone or mail.

(3) We could ask help finding financial backers or advertisers from Democratic officeholders or candidates.

(4) We could look into fundraising like dinners or other events.

(5) Identify likely radio stations that would sell us time or even better run us free of charge (which permits them to sell ads in our time slot).

In solidarity,

P.S.- Our concept is that the first 10-12 communities to get us on the air will get unique 1-2 hour weekly shows. For more hours or later markets, we will probably offer a national syndicated show.

The advantage of being one of the earliest markets is that we can have much, much more local content including local candidates, officeholders, Democratic leaders and union leaders as guests. We can do a better job of covering local events and issues although all markets will get some national figures and content.
